Sometimes the speech we hear tends to get muffled along with other sounds. This happens particularly if you are in a busy environment with lots of background noise. If you notice a recurrence of such instances frequently, you must know that this may an indication of hearing loss

While watching television or listening on audio devices if there a need for you to always raising the volume above the normal levels it may be owing to hearing problem.

If it is noticed that you as a patient are frequently asking others to repeat what they are saying while speaking to you it may be another indication of deafness.

Another symptom of hearing loss is ringing in the ears.

If you have pain in one or both ears that too needs some attention from a reliable audiologist.

If you feel pressure in one or both ears then you must consult an audiologist.

Depending on the cause the symptoms of hearing loss may vary from one cause to another.

The process of Hearing:

Our ear consists of the inner ear, the middle ear and the outer ear. The sound waves pass through the outer ear into the middle ear and strike the eardrum. Here 3 tiny bones in the middle ear amplify the vibrations and the amplified sound waves travel to the inner ear. The vibrations pass through a fluid in the inner ear. There are a huge number of tiny hairs like nerve cells in the inner ear also called the cochlea. These nerve cells help to convert these vibrations into electrical signals which are transmitted to the brain and thus we hear. However this process may get disrupted for many reasons. Some of them are as follows:

Hearing Loss Causes:

Inner Ear Getting Damaged: With continuous exposure of ears to loud noise our ears , the nerve cells or other parts of the inner ear(Cochlea) may get damaged leading to the disruption of this process leading to hearing Loss.

Ear Wax Getting Built Up: Thus they prevent proper conduction of the sound waves leading to hearing disability. However with removal of the same the problem may get rectified.

Damage of the Ear Drum: The tympanic membrane or the eardrum may due to some reason get ruptured and thus causing hearing loss.

Ear infections, bone growth in ear, tumors may lead to loss of hearing too.

So the causes may be many. But what is most important that we realize that we are suffering from hearing loss. Based on the symptoms mentioned above, we must monitor them closely and if required immediately visit a reliable audiologist.
